Question about 1996 Chrysler Concorde
On my 1996 Chrysler Concorde I had the right front axle replaced as well as all outer tie rod bushings (?), and now I have a loud squeek (sounds like bed springs) near the right front strut area. It wasn't making that sound before the work. The repair shop says it's caused by the strut's wear (130K miles.) If that is the case why no noise before the repairs?
Sounds like the McPherson strut rubbing on the bodywork. Take it back for repair. If the strut was worn, it would have been clunky before hand.

You will need a tool for disconnecting the outer tie rod end (you can do it without the tool, but it does make it harder).
Other then that, it's pretty much straight nut & bolt work (undo, reattach). It's not really a weirdness job, it is pretty straight forward.
Before you take it apart, measure length, and have your wheels straight while up on the stands. When you reassemble, try to have the measurements close to what they were when you started. I would also suggest changing both sides at the same time (wear will factor in).
Once you are done with the job, you will need to take it in for an alignment.
Front end wear and alignment go hand and hand. The more "slop" in the front end because of wear will affect how accurate you can get the front alignment.
Tire wear also factors in. If your tires have over 30K miles, you might want to consider changing them also. Reason being, it all effects front end alignment. It is not a make or break situation, but it does help balance the repair and alignment work.
Any job worth doing is worth doing right in the first place.

222,000 miles? that's a good vechile so far! anyways, do some price checking. new rack and pinions come with the inner tie rods. so if it's like 50 more for the whole assembly, i would but if not, it's up to you. i've changed some rack and pinions on vechiles that were under 150000 due to major leaking. and if you put just new rods in, if it dose start leaking later, you'll get new inner rods again with new system you'll just be paying labor and alingment charges again. so again, my OPINION is if I'm going to keep it for a while and if it's COST effective, just to do the whole unit.

You could either have a bad wheel, which could be a bent rim.
You could also have a bearing in one of the wheels that is gone causing the vibrations and wobble.
When the vehicle is raised, have the tires turned one by one and you will find the culprit (engage neutral gear and put a chock if you are doing it yourself. Safety first).
Hope that helps.
